Two Chucky Movies In The Works, a Sequel and a Remake [VIDEO]

With a horror franchise like the 24-year-old “Child’s Play” series, its common practice to release another sequel (no matter how poor the previous ones did), or to reboot the series.  In this case we have a franchise that is trying to do both.

There hasn’t been a new Chucky film since 2004′s “Seed of Chucky”, considered by many to be the low point in the series.  Now there are two Chucky projects in the works, a sequel and a remake, both of which have Brad Dourif attached to reprise his role as the voice of Chucky.  While appearing on a discussion panel at North Carolina’s Mad Monster Party convention, Dourif confirmed his attachment to both projects, saying the tentative title for for the sequel is “Revenge of Chucky”, with a possible 2013 release, the 25th anniversary of the original.

Apart from that, the only other information known is that director/writer Don Mancini and writer David Kirschner are wanting to veer away from the more comedic nature of “Bride of Chucky” and “Seed of Chucky”, and return the character to his scarier roots.

Humor has always been a part of the character of Chucky, but the last two movies were two jokes away from being shelved in the “Comedy” section at the video store.  Returning Chucky to a more suspense/horror feel is the best way to assure more longevity out of the franchise beyond simple nostalgia.
